School of Education

A Canada 150 Heritage Project

The Trent School of Education and Professional Learning in collaboration with the Trent Centre for Aging & Society is partnering with Community Care Peterborough to provide an Alternative Settings Placement for six to eight Teacher Candidates. This project is a special opportunity to build bridges intergenerationally.

Drawing on oral history techniques, Teacher Candidates will work with archivist, historians, and community members to explore our local and regional histories tied to the celebration of Canada’s 150 anniversary. 

Canada 150 LogoWe will develop and present curriculum on Canada as part of a community engagement and experiential learning opportunity. 

This exploration will culminate in intergenerational workshops at each of 7 locations of Community Care luncheon program for seniors events in the spring and fall of 2017.

This project is aligned with other Canada 150th celebrations which seek to inspire a deeper understanding about the people, places, and events that shape our communities and our country. Our goal is to build vibrant and healthy communities with the broad engagement of all Canadians, including indigenous peoples, groups that reflect our pluralism, and youth.
